Family Desert Hike

Franklins from Sotol Forest.png

This will be a 4-mile and approximately 4-hour desert walk with no major mountain climbing. It’s a good hike for beginners/intermediates, families who know they can walk the distance over uneven ground. Yes, it is dog-friendly but bring plenty of water for your pet and pick up bags. We will hike Boulder Dash and Coyote Ugly trails. Bring 2-3 liters of water, snacks, sturdy hiking shoes/boots.
Meet at the Roundhouse Trailhead on MLK Blvd.There is a $5 per person park fee or use your park pass. Contact Person: Carol Brown 915-630-1424.


From the Patriot Freeway take the MLK Blvd exit 31, turn left and go under the freeway. Drive 3- 4 miles north and the trail head will be on your left. There is a sign that says: Bowen Ranch. If you get to Jobe Quarry at Stan Roberts Sr. Avenue, you have gone too far. MAP
